They had also won silver at the 2012 World Cup stop at the London velodrome.

Carleton took up track cycling during the summer of 2011 to help recover after an accident in which she was struck by a truck while cycling on the road. She reached the podium in three events at the 2011 Canadian National Track Cycling Championships. Carleton also earned a spot to compete on the national team heading into the first World Cup of the 2011-12 season in Astana, Kazakhstan and finished fourth in the points race after fighting back from a crash.

She won two medals at the 2009 Canada Games, gold in the road race and silver in the individual time trial.
